Dench to Return for Casino Royale
Empire Online caught up with "Mrs. Henderson Presents" star Judi Dench who confirmed that she'll return in the role of M in the 21st James Bond installment, Casino Royale.
"Yes of course. And I heard today that I'm not going to be in London. I'm going to get to go to Prague and The Bahamas," she said. "They're getting me out of my box. It's a whole film there. I'm very much looking forward to working with Daniel, but I've not even read a script yet. All I know is that we're due to start in February."
It will be interesting to see how she'll again play M, since this film takes place much earlier in 007's career. Daniel Craig is taking over the role of Bond in the movie, to be directed by Martin Campbell (GoldenEye) for a November 17, 2006 release.
Dench has played M in the last four Bond movies opposite Pierce Brosnan.
